A Cautionary Tale:
Mine is a cautionary tale, at first frightening but amusing in the end. Our little Yorkie Molly and our Chihuahua Roxy seem to neither be able to make it through the night without a potty break. At home, they take care of the matter themselves via our built-in dog door. However on vacation, doing their nightly business necessitates a chaperone. more
This trip, my husband and I were in NYC for business. Our room was high up on the 17th floor in midtown Manhattan. At three a.m., the dogs let us know in no uncertain terms that they needed to be taken out! So, I took the dogs down the elevator, then into a completely dark lobby, and out the automatic doors. When the dogs were done with their business, I returned the way we had came, only to find it locked! There I was -- no purse, no keys, no coat, no cell phone -- just the dogs and I outside a hotel in New York City on a very dark night.
Thankfully, we weren't alone for long. My husband thought I was taking too long and decided to come check on me -- what a relief! He opened the door (and held it open) and all were tucked back in bed in no time.
